5. Web Sites
5.1 – Future Site Problems caused by malicious software, spyware, viruses, and website hacking are a fact of life today?s Internet. It is highly unlikely that these will affect your website, and GTrekMedia will endeavor to protect it from this as much as we can during its creation, but after the website is handed over we cannot be held responsible for problems caused by illegal activity or the actions of others.
5.2 – IMPORTANT! Failure to Provide Required Website Content You must ensure that we are not delayed as a result of the late delivery of the material and content required to complete your website. This is why we ask that you provide all the required information in advance. On any occasion where we are delayed because you have not provided this information, we reserve the right to impose a surcharge of 25% of the total cost of the work. If you agree to provide us with the required information in advance and subsequently fail to do within four weeks of project commencement we reserve the right to close the project and the balance remaining becomes payable immediately. This will not be a problem provided that you do not give us the go-ahead to start until you are ready to do so.
